Does everyone know who this pretty lady is???
It's the beautiful Brooke Deen...wife of Food Network Star, cookbook author and restaurant owner Jamie Deen. (Whose mama is the fabulous Paula Deen!) Brooke and I have bonded over several things recently and I am so blessed to call her my friend.
I asked Brooke to share with me her favorite recipe that she makes for her family...so what did she do?
She sent me the Deen Brothers Cookbook that contained her famous meatloaf recipe (along with so many other mouth-watering recipes!).
She says this is one of her family's favorite meals...and now, it's one of mine too.
2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 large eggs
1 slice white bread, torn into pieces
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Mix well and then press the mixture into a 9x5" loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the last three ingredients to form a glaze. After 30 minutes of baking, brush some of the glaze over the top of the meatloaf. Bake for another 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Turn meatloaf out onto a serving platter and spoon remaining glaze over the top.
It was perfection. Easy, family friendly and delicious. Apparently, all Deen women know how to cook!

Thank you Brooke for sharing your family's favorite weeknight supper with me!
